Multi-purpose pack from 3M offers simple and quick abrasive solution for bodyshops

Diversified technology company 3M has launched a unique abrasive products kit specifically designed for automotive panel shop applications. The 3M Roloc Panel Shop Pack contains a range of products which enable fast and convenient grinding and finishing for a range of common tasks.

The kit includes a range of 3M Roloc abrasive products including Bristle Discs, Fibre Discs, Surface Conditioning Discs and a compact Pistol Grip Air Tool. Ideal for a range of tasks, the Roloc Bristle Discs provide safe and effective removal of paint, body coatings, sealers and light rust, while the Roloc Fibre Discs can tackle awkward areas that others can’t reach, such as door shuts, pinch welds and wheel arches. The Roloc Surface Conditioning Discs can be used for cleaning light oxidation on aluminium, steel, iron, stainless steel or other general cleaning applications, while the Pistol Grip Air Tool features a variable speed adjustment to ensure fast stock removal, as well as an ergonomic grip handle for maximum comfort.

All products within the 3M Roloc Panel Shop Pack feature a ‘twist-on/ twist-off’ fixing system, which means the user can conveniently alter the grade and product type.

Dave Nimmey of 3M’s Automotive Aftermarket Division said: “3M has a wide range of Roloc grinding and finishing discs for panel shop operations and we wanted to put together a complete system to cover most common tasks. The unique Roloc fixing system on each of the discs means reduced downtime compared with conventional shaft mounted products.

“Meanwhile, the new Pistol Grip Air Tool has been developed to provide optimum performance alongside low noise levels and operator comfort features.”
